Buttoned Up Businessy but Semi-Casual.

I call this look a buttoned-up office look without being too buttoned-up, if you know what I mean. I could have easily paired these slacks and button-down shirt with a blazer but chose not to. ;-) I added a semi-casual, semi-dressy, open, 3/4 sleeve cardi instead.
